Fly me to the moon. The moon in human imagination - 12-13/12/2019, Genova (Italy)
go to CALL FOR PAPERS
The moon has always been a source of mystery and enchantment to people of all times and has lit up our imagination for centuries: : for writers and poets, the moon has been at one moment a beneficent and comforting presence offering refuge in nocturnal and idyllic landscapes, at the next a silent confidante to secret loves, but also a witness of misdeeds, crimes and mysterious adventures, as well as power capable of generating werewolves and creatures of the night. From ancient times to modern Western art and literature, the Moon is a recurring subject of poetry and all sorts of artistic treatments, an inspiration for mythologies and mysticism, the object of scientific inquiries and a crucial destination for science-fiction fantasies. We might say that the attraction our satellite exerts on literature is at least as powerful as its pull on the tides.
